If the hardware is about to die you could use a ghosting software (like Norton Ghost) to make a image of the hard drive that you can restore on to a new computer.  You can also use drive cloning software/hardware that does sector by sector hard drive coping to create an exact replica of the data.  The key is in whatever option you take just make sure the cloned drive will be bootable.

If you don't have hardware to copy it to you can always get VMware Player (Free) or one of their paid products to do a restore on to a VM running on a different system.  Without knowing what is failing and how you plan on moving things around it is hard to give a real good road map.

NOTE: if the copy of Windows came with the server, then you need to buy a new copy of Windows Server 2012 to ensure you are licensed.
